Default Performance II on 8 inch drum

Im finally trying to get aquarians on all my drums, and i was wondering if i could get a performance II to sound like i currently have my 8 inch tom. Its tuned way higher than the other three (its not a steady drop in tuning) and im wondering if i can get a good sound like the remo emperor i have on it now. Is there another head i should look at, or will the performance II work well? The reason im asking is because im putting per. II on all my other toms, and i have always just used one type on toms.

performance 2's are a very unique sounding head, if you're putting it on the rest of your toms i'd advise putting it on your 8 as well... it will sound good as long as you can tune good ;)

well i like to have a really high pitched sound with a lot of body to it, and im worried the performance 2 will be too muffled or not open enough, would that be a problem?

An 8" drum will not sustain that long due to the smallness of the head, there just isn't enough mass to keep going. I'm going to guess that any premuffled head will take what little sustain you do have and reduce it even more. I'd try a single ply, and if that doesn't do it, try a 2 ply. Then try a premuffled if you still aren't happy.
